With the increasing importance of heterogeneous networks and time-varying communication channels, fine sealability has become a highly desirable feature in both image and video coders. A single highly scalable bitstream can provide precise rate control for constant bitrate (CBR) traffic and accurate quality control for variable bitrate (VBR) traffic. We first propose two leaky-bucket rate allocation methods that provide constant quality video under buffer constraints. These methods can be used with all scalable coders. Moreover, we make use of one of these methods (DBRC) and extend it so that it can be used when multiple sequences are multiplexed over a single communications channel. The goal is to allocate the capacity of the channel between sequences to achieve constant quality across all sequences. Experimental results using Motion JPEG2000 demonstrate substantial benefits.
